5 Shows After Dark: It's the Ciiiiirrrrrrclllleeee of Liiiiiiiiiiffffeeeeee!

By Genevieve Burgess | Miscellaneous | August 6, 2013 | Comments ()


“I Escaped Jaws” on Discovery at 9:00pm ET.

“The Chase” on GSN at 9:00pm ET. Series premiere. An American version of a British game show, despite the name there is no actual chasing involved. It’s just an especially gimmicky version of a trivia competition involving an “all knowing” trivia savant known as “The Beast.” It’s already been renewed for a second season. Cheers!

“Drunk History” on Comedy Central at 10:00pm ET.

“Hard Knocks: Training Camp with the Cincinnati Bengals” on HBO at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. Aw yeah, remember football? It remembers you. And it’s totally over in the corner acting all cool like it didn’t even notice you standing there. But it noticed, and you noticed it noticed and sometime soon (September 5th) it’ll totally walk over and be like ‘Hey’ and then a few weeks after that you’ll be swearing at it like it never left.

“The Legend of Shelby the Swamp Man” on History at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. A new spin-off from the always popular “Ax Men.” You were watching “Ax Men”, right? I felt it a masterful look at the trials and tribulations of men who had the misfortune of being born part ax, an often overlooked and misunderstood condition. Hopefully the other Ax Men have recovered well, even though it appears their friend Shelby has now come down with some sort of condition related to or involving swamps. Very sad.

Genevieve Burgess rejects your reality and substitutes her own.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Heeheeeeeeee, Ax Men. Heee.

  • Fredo

    I still haven't forgiven Discovery for that Megalodon fake-doc shit from Sunday night.

    If I want fake shark stuff, Ian Ziering better be wielding chainsaws.

  • Welldressed

    I'm going to call Balderdash on the Ax Men spinoff solely for the reason that it's title is embarrassingly long and convoluted. Otherwise, completely plausible.

  • Monica

    I saw a commercial for it while watching Project Runway... or America's next top model. I was home sick and it was dark times, dark times.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    It's real. Somehow, dear god, it's real.

  • e jerry powell

    Before you set about slitting your wrists...

  • BWeaves

    It feels like it's been Shark Week for months.

  • e jerry powell

    Mostly because now there are TWO shark weeks at the same time. NatGeo Wild had to get in on the gore for some reason.
